Nsabata in a dilemma…as he can’t toast pending South African move over CHAN

Chipolopolo Boys second choice goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata is in dilemma as the decision he is going to take might map his international career.

It is an open secret that it is difficult for goalkeepers to clinch professional deals. And when one pops up, one has to take it with both hands.

But it’s not the case with one Zambian player.

The Zanaco shot stopper has been offered the chance to ply his trade with unnamed South African club next year but the chance to gain tournament experience as he bids to establish himself and dislodge Kennedy Mweene as Zambia’s safe hands is proving to be stumbling block.

“Nsabata is aware that this is his chance to be Zambia’s first choice goalkeeper. Should he impress at the CHAN tournament then he won’t do himself any harm,” a ZamFoot Crew source said.

Though the official stance is that Nsabata, Lubinda Mundia and Isaac Shamujompa have been excused from this week’s training camp as they are set to get married, there’s a notion from inside Chipolopolo camp, Nsabata and Mundia were finalising deals to Tanzania and South Africa respectively.

“Toaster could be in South Africa but he wants to strike a deal that he can join them after CHAN.

The CHAN tournament will run from January 12 to February 4, 2018 and depending on the transfer window in South Africa, he might wait for the June – August window should Zambia reach the finals.

In Nsabata’s absence, Chipolopolo Boys coach Wedson Nyirenda has been taking a closer look at Nkana’s Moses Mapulanga and Allan Chibwe from Power Dynamos.

Red Arrows’ Ken Mumba is the other back up goalkeeper.

Zambia is in Group B alongside Ivory coast, Uganda and Namibia.

    Let him do CHAN first, the tournament offers him the best opportunity of marketing himself while he testing himself at the highest level!

    The SA team(s) can wait…

    Toaster opportunities some times happen only once. This might just be that time for you to move. Hope you won’t regret if you miss this chance.

  4. General says:

    let him go to chan first. if he do well other big teams can buy him or to replace Ba gogo Mweene Kennedy who can’t dive properly due to old age.

  5. km says:

    Point taken, let him do Chan

    If he go to chan first he will be venturing into a high risk of jeopardising his move. I have no faith and trust in wada wada.. He not a good tactician. He rely on individual players who play to save his job especially the under 20 boyz.. Mwepu and patson.. Since the arrival of wada wada i have never watched zambia playing as a team.. I last saw the boys playing well the last chan tournerment. The was cohesion,stabity and good transition. The defenders were clearing their lines very well and cordinating with midfilders very well. And in midfield there was a lot of creativity. Against zimbabwe they exchanged more than twenty passes without an interception. Chipolopolo these its very unpredictable let them go to chan and you have to go to south africa..
